Ms. Vasundhara Raje,
Chief Minister of Rajasthan,
Dear Ms. Vasundhara Raje,
We are very disturbed by the lynching and murder of Pehlu Khan in Alwar. He was attacked on April 1st at Behror in Alwar District and died of the injuries a few days later. We are also dismayed by the acts of omission and commission of the government following the incident, including the delay and marked reluctance in arresting all those guilty of the act.
